Here is some information on upcoming training:

Requirement (for club officers) is to attend 2 hours of training which can include Core Officer training, Elective training or a combination. If you have not been to the core officer training before for the office you hold, it is encouraged that you attend that training. Note some training sessions will have core training only and some will offer both core training and electives. You can attend any TLI training provided in any District. The surrounding Districts are very good about transferring credit to District 27. Remember to register with your name, club name (Helmsmen), club number (2412), District (27), office you will be holding starting July 1. District information is especially important if you are taking your training at a nearby district (29, 36, 18, 66). Some training events have an Eventbrite site where you can register but it is not required (generally) to register prior to attending.

If you are not a club officer, you are still invited to attend Toastmasters Leadership Institute and take available training. There is generally no fee for the training. Often, but not always, they will ask you to contribute to pay for snacks and/or drinks that are provided.
